ACPI / Sleep: Allow the NVS saving to be skipped during suspend to RAM
Commit 2a6b69765ad794389f2fc3e14a0afa1a995221c2 (ACPI: Store NVS state even when entering suspend to RAM) caused the ACPI suspend code save the NVS area during suspend and restore it during resume unconditionally, although it is known that some systems need to use acpi_sleep=s4_nonvs for hibernation to work. To allow the affected systems to avoid saving and restoring the NVS area during suspend to RAM and resume, introduce kernel command line option acpi_sleep=nonvs and make acpi_sleep=s4_nonvs work as its alias temporarily (add acpi_sleep=s4_nonvs to the feature removal file).
